Things I’m Doing

November 8, 2013

I haven’t been feeling fantastic this week so I thought I’d do something different and easier to write that I thought could be fun. I hope you enjoy it. I’m adding an old outfit that I found in my hard drive. I can only take decent outfit photos on weekends now, it’s too dark when I get home from work!

(Idea stolen from Xandra at Fashionably Light)

Making: Handmade wrapping paper this Christmas.

Cooking: Nothing. I don’t cook much these days.

Drinking: Rooibos tea out of a stripy XL mug.

Reading: The Juliette Society by Sasha Grey.

Wanting: to sleep better.

Looking: For more shoes.

Playing: Air guitar.

Wasting: Time watching Netflix.

Sewing: I can only hope.

Wishing: for my Christmas holiday to come quick.

Enjoying: La Luz – Brainwash.

Waiting: for my pink Fuji Instax Mini 8 to arrive.

Liking: Capes. Lots of them.

Loving: My husband. More and more each day. <3

Hoping: To go to London soon.

Marveling: At the kindness of people.

Needing: A massage and my husband’s cooking.

Smelling: Nice.

Wearing: My pjs.

Following: Girl with the Flower.

Noticing: the days getting shorter and colder. Bring on Spring!

Knowing: That I am happy.

Thinking: About not buying clothes next year.

Bookmarking: Fantastic shoe lacing methods. It’s the details!

Opening: My mouth in a big yawn!

Giggling: At cat memes. I’m so predictable.

Feeling: Very tired but happy.

(outfit details: Coat – New Look (swap with Lili), Breton Shirt – Zara Lefties, Apple Belt – some closing down sale in Lisbon, Cardigan – H&M, Tulle Skirt – Ebay, Pink Beret – Betsey Johnson, Tights – Primark, Shoes – Irregular Choice, via Ebay.)

Have a lovely weekend!

    I hear ya on it being too dark to take photos. It seems like every time I set up my tripod in my flat, the sun goes in and I end up having to take garish flash photos. Love the combination of purple (or is that blue?) tights with the shiny red shoes.
    I’ve completely gone over to rooibos tea instead of black tea the past few months.
    I’ll be in London end of Nov. to mid-Jan, so let me know if you want to meet up for a cup of rooibos. I’ll be going to Lisbon in Dec. so I might get in touch to see if you have any tips.

    I read your comment on my blog, so you got Firmoo glasses too? that’s freakin good deal i tell you –
    I love your outfit, all those colors mixed together so adorable, you are adorable Sara!

    I want a Fuji Instax Mini 8 too! – I ask Mr D to get me one for X-mas – I checked they have them in Mtl, I would order it on line but i’m afraid of the customs fees and taxes, so much here – From where is yours coming from?
